Examine the Verse
1 Peter 2:22
This verse is claimed to provide the basis of the Iglesia ni Cristo belief
Jesus is not an ordinary man but a very special Man,
who was sanctified; made Lord, Christ, Savior, Mediator and Judge by God.

  “He never sinned,
   and he never told a lie.”
(1 Peter 2:22,  Easy to Read Version)
"He committed no sin,
and no deceit was found in his mouth."

(1 Peter 2:22,  New American Bible)
Christ did not sin

 or ever tell a lie.
(1 Peter 2:22,  Contemporary English Version)
  Iglesia ni Cristo belief in God and Jesus Christ:
Iglesia ni Cristo believes in the absolute oneness of God, that "the Only True God is the Father" in heaven; The Father is the Lord God Almighty, the Creator of all things. God is Spirit, eternal, immortal and invisible; He is the God and Father of Jesus Christ and His Apostles; and that of Moses,
Abraham and the ancient Israelites.
Iglesia ni Cristo believes that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. As the Son of God,
Jesus is a Man.  However, Jesus is not an ordinary man but a "very special Man",
who was sanctified; made Lord, Christ, Savior, Mediator and Judge by God.
  Apostle's admonition, warning and unique way of teaching:
1. No prophecy of scripture is a matter of personal interpretation. (II Pt. 1:20, NAB)
2. Do not go beyond  what is written. (I Cor. 4:6, NIV)
 3. We do not use words of human wisdom. We speak words given to us by the Spirit,
using the Spirit's words to explain spiritual truths. (1 Cor. 2:13, NLT)
  Points to Consider:  
  1.  The above verse clearly say that, "He never sinned and never told a lie" or "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth."
2.  Please note that many people are unwittingly led to believe that Jesus is God because He committed no sin. Trinitarians argue that since all men sins and Jesus committed no sin, therefore Jesus must be God. Their assumption that Jesus must be God because He did not sin is going beyond what is written in the verse.

3. Also, please note very that
one of the reason why is Jesus Christ is  the only man who committed no sin was also explained by Jesus himself in John 10:36.
